497 Reps = CrossFit Problems.

10 Jan

When I walked into the box and saw the 5:45 p.m. class suffering through this WOD, I seriously wanted to go home.  I had to ask my coach, Josh, for a slap on the face (this is totally ok – it’s my slap of confidence).  The WOD was has horrible as it looked.  Our team, which we named 2 Girls and a Guy, completed 497 reps.  Four hundred and ninety-seven reps, y’all!  Not bad, huh?

Wait, just 10 more seconds!

One of my fellow CrossFitters at RRCF submitted a “CrossFit Problems,” and I think we can all relate…

…when your coach won’t allow you to enjoy the best part of a burpee – the 10 second (or 45) second nap you get to take when you go down to the floor just before you focus on the actual push up!  For some reason they keep trying to wake you!?!?! – Laurie AKA Patriot

Now let me tell you a little about Patriot.  I don’t believe I’ve ever seen her frown – she’s all smiles all the time.  It’s extremely inspirational.  🙂

Determination.

18 Oct

My last post was about how I boo freaking hoo’ed at CrossFit on Tuesday.  Yesterday, I read some of my older posts and is unreal how a person can change in a few months.  I’ve mentioned it before and I’ll mention it again, CrossFit isn’t just about physical fitness, it is about breaking down those mental and emotional barriers to allow YOU to believe in yourself.  Little by little, I am becoming more confident in my skills.  I am believing in myself a little more each week.  It is tough, but I never expected it to be easy.

 

After my mini breakdown on Tuesday, I committed me – myself – and I to not letting it get me down.  I put behind the stares from falling on my head during HSPU’s and I showed up tonight determined to make that WOD my biatch, which I did.  Yes sir, I sure did!  And Josh Carter, if you are reading this, can we say progress?

 

Ok, so I am sure you’re wondering about tonight’s WOD, huh?
